I love your avatar Natsu! (You too Jace!)

I personally am lazy and buy in the Marketplace, but it's great to get deals in the Exchange. Getting discounts are always a good idea, so feel free to mix it up if ya wanna listen to me.




And for you Jace:

I am currently hoarding seasonal (Mostly Halloween and Christmas, but I have lots of Summer from the lack of selling this year and some Easter/Valentines.)

I will be getting some LexBoxes to hopefully make a relatively fast profit since my goal is currently 10mil. Also, I got into teh Hoarding Guild!!!
@ Mizuki and Sayuri - thanks, me either, i just finished this avi today...

i almost forgot this, when the items reach inflate, where i should sell it? mp or forum? bulk sell or partial?

A lot of people expect deals in the Exchange, so I always sell on the Market (Allowing people to Autobuy for 98% of my listed selling price) so just keep in mind the 2% tax when doing that. Most people want a 10% discount or so in the Exchange.

When I buy bundles, I keep them as 1 and sell them and sell anything else singles unless someone PMs me for a larger amount. I rarely lower prices but I sometimes give a slight discount for people who buy in bulk

Please don't fill up your store with same item at the same price. That drives me insane...and deflates the MP longer.

Hello Natsu. ^.^

There really isn't a set amount of gold you need to start hoarding. Although, obviously, if you wanted to hoard a ton of August 09 letters you'd need a lot of starting capital.
I often try to buy in the Exchange because you can get some nice discounts. I typically do this for event items but end up not doing it as much for more expensive ones because I run into the problem that no one is selling.

And when you want to sell, again, it depends. If it's something that sells pretty fast and I'm not worried about getting rid of it in one go I'll sell them (one at a time) in the MP. But for a big event or sponsor hoard I'd probably go to the Exchange with most of it. And bulk sales are easier as long as you're getting a decent price. But if you're getting a better price selling it all piece-by-piece you obviously want to give yourself more gold.

I agree with Mizuki about bundles. I've never had anyone pm me, though.



Sayu-

Why must Nekos have shoes?



Mizuki-

*nodnod* Those (seasonal and RIGs) are good things to be hoarding. And Yay! I saw. I thought about making a thread saying something to you in the Chit Chat subforum but I didn't know if you'd see it. >.<
uhmm, from your guide i decided that RIG make more profits, so i pick RIG for investiment,, how about 700k at start? i can buy about 2 bundles (so total 18 ) ...how bout it?

Actually I have a question. When would it be best to sell seasonal hoards like for Halloween. During the event? Before it?

Natsu-

Yeah, that's definitely a good amount. I wouldn't buy them right now, though. I'd wait a bit longer until they go down close to 270k a bundle (or about 30k for each single.)




Sayu-

It depends on how much you have. If you have a lot you want to start sooner. But if you don't have that much you probably want to sell a week or so before and into the beginning of the event. You can sell in the MP and the Exchange depending on how you want to do it.

At present I'm trying to sell early so I can get rid of them and reinvest my gold in case I end up with no internet for a while after I move.

Hey Jace, nice guide, I have on thing to point though: the first artpad, Hoarding Curve, doesn't work. Meaning it just leads to a page with a blank artpad.

Oh no. o.o
I wonder what happened to it?
I'll have to try to do it over.
Maybe. >.<
I'm really terrible at even failure drawings.
